The Serrania de Ronda is a range of mountains dotted with white-washed villages (pueblos blancos). The best-known destination is Ronda; one of the oldest towns in Spain. It has been built on a rocky outcrop that is 100 metres high, overlooking the Tajo Gorge, Ronda is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Andalusia.
The Serrania de Ronda is 47 kilometres from San Pedro de Alcantara on the Costa del Sol. Winding mountain roads reveal one of the most stunning natural landscapes, mountains ranges broken up by plains that stretch as far as the eye can see. Wildlife includes eagles and kestrels, outdoor activities and sports are endless in the hills, valleys and forests.
It is a fairly mountainous area, with some of the most beautiful pueblos blancos (white villages) of Andalusia. There are over 20 pueblos blancos villages (white villages*) to explore by car, mountain bike or trekking in selected areas. One highlight is the Cueva de la Pileta, a Palaeolithic cave discovered dating back some 20,000 years. The caves shelter some of the most important cave art in Europe and they are open to the public
The little town of Júzcar (Malaga, Spain), one of the “White Towns of Andalusia”, was chosen by Sony Pictures as the place to stage the worldwide release for the film Smurfs 2011. For the occasion, all the white houses and buildings were painted blue and stayed that colour until the end of summer 2011. The colour change boosted its tourists from 300 to 160,000 a year.
